MEET DANA FARAGASSO
Dana is a native of Chester County, having grown up in the Coatesville area. She first earned her Bachelor’s degree in Economics and worked in the financial industry. While in college, she led the community service organization for her school’s Campus Ministry. At this time, Dana realized her passion for serving others. Then, as a newlywed to Joe, they returned to Chester County to develop and nurture roots of their own. Dana’s passion for serving others took on a very personal meaning when she cared for her mother. After her mother passed away in 2012, she felt God, quietly, call her back to the church, and to serving her community.
As God’s call was growing, Mission Community Church was just being established. Having mutual friends who attended MCC, the Faragasso family was welcomed, with open arms, to a small room at a local fire station, where they listened to Pastor Jason’s sermon on Ephesians 5, and felt God move in their lives. Getting to know and share life with the MCC community has been a blessing for each of them. When the opportunity to lead MissionServe arose, Dana was grateful for the opportunity to share one of her dearest passions with those around her, and to truly make a positive difference in the lives of others.
Dana and Joe reside in Downingtown, PA, with their two wonderful daughters, Isla and Caroline. On an average day, Dana enjoys time spent with family, making home-cooked meals and playing classic rock on the piano.
